Voting is under way in the final round of parliamentary elections in France tipped to give the centrist President Emmanuel Macron a massive majority and revolutionise the country’s political landscape. The 39-year-old former banker, who was unknown to the public just three years ago, has defied all the unwritten rules of French politics with his meteoric rise to the top and now looks set to secure a position of almost unassailable power.
The story of how a Frenchwoman, who used to help campaign for France's anti-immigration Front National party led by Marine Le Pen, fell in love with a migrant from the notorious Calais Jungle refugee camp who had stitched his lips together in protest against French authorities. She was a card-carrying Front National supporter and her “racist” policeman husband’s job was to help hold back the wave of migrants trying to break into the Channel Tunnel terminal or the ferry port at Calais.
A Canadian woman killed in the London terror attack was the first victim to be identified on Sunday. Seven people were killed and 48 injured when three terrorists in a van mowed down pedestrians on London Bridge before stabbing a police officer and revellers around Borough Market with 12-inch knives. Twenty-one of those injured were in a critical condition. A French citizen is also among the victims, according to France's foreign ministry. Here's a look at those who died in the attack.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
